Get Your Act Together for Fall- August Editor's Picks

Kids may have their back-to-school lists, but executives have a “back-to-fall” list. Kick it into high gear with these fall must-haves.

1) Clean up your act with This handy app scans your email and helps you identify all of the brands, companies and newsletters you have subscribed to. See your entire list, and unsubscribe at the click of a button! It took me two minutes to scan two inboxes with over 400 subscriptions. Now, I have a total of five.

2) I love a beautiful Moleskin notebook in bright red or sleek black. However, there’s something adventurous about grabbing a notebook from Field Notes to add an old-school reporter or scientist flair to your note taking. They make my notes look perfect even with my less-than-perfect penmanship.

3) Pair your classic notebook with a fine set of uni-ball Roller pens to create the ultimate writer’s combo.

4) Men and women alike will be hard-pressed to find travel and gym bags that are both efficient and elegant. The Lo & Sons O.M.G. overnight and medium gym bag as well as the Pearl crossbody have caught my attention.

5) Finally, my muse. The right music is the perfect inspiration for writing. My current playlist includes the following work jams:

“Little Motel” by Modest Mouse

“The Funeral” by Band of Horses

“Sodom, South Georgia” by Iron and Wine

“Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve

“A Girl Like You” by The Smithereens

Lyrics too distracting? Try anything from Rodrigo y Gabriela, Chet Baker, “In a Silent Way” by Miles Davis or the Heartplay album with Charlie Haden and Antonio Forcione.
